Coupon Questions to Ask Your Store

Coupon policies can vary widely from store to store, and knowing the policies at your particular store can be very helpful so you can better plan and know what to expect. If you ask, you might be able to get a copy of the store's coupon policy at the customer service desk. And, here are some questions you can ask at your store so you can get the most for our money:
  • Does your store double or triple coupons? If so, up to what value do they double/triple? Is there a limit on the number of like coupons or total coupons that can be doubled/tripled per transaction? Does the store always double/triple coupons, or is it just on certain days of the week or during special promotions?
  • Does your store accept expired coupons? How far out from the expiration date will expired coupons be accepted?
  • Does your store accept internet-printed coupons? Is there a limit on the number of internet coupons that will be accepted per transaction? Is there a limit on the dollar amount or percent-of-value coupons that will be accepted?
  • Does your store issue store coupons that can be combined with manufacturer coupons? Many stores, including CVS, Walgreens, Target, and Meijer do this, and it can make for some amazing deals.
  • Does your store accept more than one like store coupon per transaction? The registers at some stores (such as CVS and Target) are sometimes set to not accept more than one of the same store coupon per transaction. It may vary from chain to chain (and even from store to store within chains) whether or not multiples will be accepted.
